thanks for all the help. it was going to take a little me work then i wanted to put into it for the price they were asking for.
I have a 75 CJ5.. Paid $5000 for mine. BUT, mine had 13,500 original miles on it and was in pristine condition.. Mine has power brakes and steering.. Things to look for. Check the frame in the front behind the tires, etc. Look for cracks close to where the brake line comes through the frame... Also on the front inside of the frame.. These old Jeeps were famous for frame cracking.. I had to fishplate and weld my frame last summer [20,000 miles].. The 75 was the best year of all the intermediate Jeeps.. Dana 30 front, Dana 44 rear.. The stock 3-speed sux as it is not geared low enough, but you can swap in a granny low 4speed w/o too much trauma.. The Jeep shown in the photos appears to be a Levi's edition as the seats look correct. Musta been repainted somewhere along the line..
Not too bad for a 75. I like the uniqueness of an intermediate Jeep. But remember, although many parts can be found, other parts often require custom fabrication for the body and interior. I think I have the most respect for the guys that can not only keep this era jeep on the road but actually restore them to like new condition. I also appreciate their sharing of information to keep mine on the road for the weekends.....
The two best off-road vehicles in the world -- the Jeep CJ and rental cars.
